Chapter 1: Old Friends, New Friends
The sky was dark, not a hint of color on the horizon. The only reason Lex could see the shape coming up the road was because of the moonlight bouncing off the fresh snow. The scene reminded him of an old black and white silent movie. Not a sound could be heard apart from his own breathing. He had watched this approach at least a couple of dozen times since moving to Terrace. Even now in winters close embrace, Lex could feel the warm rush of anticipation flush his cheeks.
“Good morning, Lex” issued a peppermint fog that slipped between two folds of a yellow scarf. She stood close to him shielding herself from an icy, galloping wind driven by the sun warming the air over the valleys to the east.
